I initially booked with another company who canceled last minute so I was redirected to Discover El Nido through my hotel (the H hotel) so the stars indeed aligned in my favor and BOY was I lucky! My tour guide Julius is an AMAZING photographer as well as just an accommodating tour guide ! EVERYTHING was pure PERFECTION! The weather, our BBQ lunch, all the beach stops were postcard perfect and our boat had half the amount of people that normally attend. I'd say splurge and get your own private boat though so you can control your experience! Overall Julius , our Captain and the entire crew were simply OUTSTANDING! If you're lucky enough to get Julius Im certain you will have instagrammabke moments that will last a lifetime! KUDOS to Discover El Nido! I'll most definitely be back!!

Discover El Nido is probably the best tour company in El Nido. I am very please with their service from booking my tour up to the tour itself. They were very accommodating most especially during their tours. Our tour guides, Kuya Anton and Kuya Rose, was knowledgable about the places we went to and was very amusing. Boat captain and crew was very kind and kudos to their great skills in taking pictures! The food that comes with the tour was also great and delicious since it was cooked during our tour. Will vouch for this wonderful tour and travel agency 🤍

Incredible island hoping private tour with the amazing guide Aicen. Aicen made even a cloudy day sunny! Not kidding, the guy goes the extra mileS, he not only jumped on the kayak spots with us to make amazing photos and videos, but he sings (beautiful voice), makes food sculpture (take a look at the photos) and also do underwater bubbles, you gotta be there to understand :) he is like a MacGyver! We did tour D, the less crowded one and he even found us a clean beach to have lunch with no other boat! But I bet any tour would have been amazing with this guy. Super recommend him!

The most organized tour company in El Nido! Communication was quick, clear, and easy. We booked two tours with them, but the 2nd was canceled due to weather. The team didn't hesitate to provide a refund.

We booked Tour A with EJ as the guide. He was entertaining and informative. He also recommended to skip some spots and go somewhere else instead due to the huge number of people muddying up some of the locations. They also let us do a few side trips to other nearby beaches since we were about to return early.

Overall a great experience and the only tour operator you should book in El Nido!

Reserved tour A was amended due to weather conditions, but was varied & scenic nonetheless. Boat was clean, tasty lunch cooked onboard was enthusiastically served by Aldin, Leonard & crew. Safety standards were enforced. Swimming gear is necessary as we had to wade out to chest height in water to board. Dry bags & waterproof phone cases very useful.

El nido is a must see. I’m from California and I must say our beaches is the best.
We enjoyed our tour A with the help of our expert professional tour guide Antonio Lopez Agustin Chua and the rest of the crew. He took care of his tour clients especially us beginners. He also took great photos and videos of us and made my tour memorable.
I’ll definitely recommend him to my friends and relatives. I’ll be back :)

If you wish to come to El Nido in the Palawan islands I would advice you fly to Lio airport from Manila. This will save you a 6hr drive from Puerta Princesa Airport. Once in El Nido, there are the most wonderful beaches and lagoons around the various islands. Truly a tropical paradise. We went on a tremendous island tour with 'Discover El Nido' with tour guide Arden, the Captain and his great crew. A 'must' for anyone visiting this wonderful part of the Philippines.

I was staying at Nacpan Beach Glamping and they recommended Discover El Nido. I booked Tour D as a private tour with them, as well as arranging all my travel to and from Nacpan Beach. First about Tour D. I had read that this is the least popular island hopping tour. I chose it because I was hoping for less crowded stops and I was right. Each stop was also incredibly beautiful. First was Small Lagoon. We were the first to arrive and spent an hour or so kayaking around just me Ann’s my friend with no one else there. To say Small Lagoon is stunning does not do it justice. And to have it all to ourselves was really special. The other stops were all wonderful including Cadlao Lagoon and Pasandigan Beach where we had lunch. Our crew were great and I highly recommend them. Our guide Antonio took so many great photos of us. The captain Salvador was great and helped rescue a stranded boat. And finally Carmelito the chef cooked an amazing lunch. I highly recommend this agency for your tour in El Nido.
